Oswego State vs. Potsdam State
April 19, 2006
The Game Story:
OSWEGO - The Oswego State men's lacrosse team defeated Potsdam 9-8
on Wednesday afternoon in three overtimes. Oswego State's Steve
Tronovitch scored the game-winning goal 26 seconds into the third
overtime session.

Neither team held more than a two-goal lead at any point in the
game. The teams alternated scoring the first six goals of the game
but Potsdam's Adam Wood and Matt Vaverchak tallied to put the Bears
in front 5-3. Oswego State scored five of the next six goals to turn
that deficit into a two-goal advantage. Two goals by Potsdam over
the last five minutes of play sent the game into overtime.

A pushing penalty against Potsdam late in the second overtime gave
the Lakers possession of the ball without a face off in the third
overtime and Tronovitch buried the game-winner two seconds after the
penalty was released.

Tronovitch had three goals in the game to lead all Laker scorers.
Chris Mitchell and Rob Tramantozzi each scored twice. Mike Strohm
had three assists. Laker goalie Matt Pfister made 13 saves on the
afternoon including a stop in overtime on a close-range shot by
Harrison Rogers.

Potsdam's Travis Holmes had two goals and three assists and Harrison
Rogers scored twice and had two assists. Goalie Brian Hondorf made
nine saves.

The Lakers improved to 2-2 in the SUNYAC and 4-8 overall while
Potsdam is now 2-3 in the conference and 5-7 overall. Oswego State
travels to Oneonta for a game on Saturday at noon.
